Berlin is THE sports metropolis of Germany. And not just because of the many international events that the city has already seen: These include European and world championships in a wide variety of sports, as well as the 2015 UEFA Champions League final.
To ensure that Berlin remains a city of elite sports in the future, the “Initiative Sportmetropole Berlin” [Berlin Sports Metropolis Initiative] was founded in 2009. It markets the German capital nationally and internationally as the metropolis for sports.
In this unique cooperation across Germany, the key decision-makers of Berlin’s sports and business have joined forces:
- Berlin´s Top Clubs: 1. FC Union Berlin, ALBA Berlin, Berlin Recycling Volleys, Eisbären Berlin, Füchse Berlin, Hertha BSC Berlin
- Sports Facilities: Max-Schmeling-Halle, Mercedes-Benz-Arena, Olympiastadion Berlin, Stadion an der Alten Försterei, Velodrom
- Further Partners: BERLIN-MARATHON, Landessportbund Berlin, Olympiastützpunkt Berlin
- Institutions: Berlin Partner, IHK Berlin, Senatsverwaltung für Inneres und Sport, visitBerlin
